Port Elizabeth music fans have a treat in store when New York based singer-songwriter Jann Klose performs on Saturday, September 17, in a show alongside South Africa’s Majozi.

The two musicians will play their brand of roots rock at the Music Kitchen in Newton Park, with doors opening at 5pm.

Klose is an award-winning pop singer-songwriter, who has released five albums and two EPs. He also has performed as an actor and singer in touring companies of Broadway musicals, so knows how to entertain a crowd.

He was raised in Kenya, South Africa and Germany before moving to the United States whereas Nhlanhla Majozi – who goes by his surname only as a musician – is from Durban and wears his heart on his sleeve, literally, because Majozi has tattoos dedicated to his faith and to his mother – two very defining aspects of his life, both of which inspire the music he writes.

In 2013 he released his first EP, Marvelous Light, recorded and produced by Warren Meyer of Doppler Studios. The album made it to nine overall on the South African iTunes chart and number one in the singer/songwriter category.

Following the online success and popularity of the EP and his first single, The River, Majozi has gone on to release a number of catchy songs. His hot track, Fire, made it to No 10 on 5FM and his feel-good single, Darling, cracked it into the top 10 on both the East Coast Radio and Jacaranda 94.2 charts.

His most recent single, The Greatest Love, not only made it to the Top 10 of Jacaranda 94.2’s charts but debuted in the iTunesTop 40 chart on 94.7 and KFM in the week of release.

Majozi’s most recent achievements include receiving the opportunity to play a festival in Amsterdam alongside South African music greats Francois van Coke and Die Heuwels Fantasties, as well as the release of his brand new album, Fire, which soared to third spot on the SA iTunes charts.

Tickets are R80 online and R100 at the door.
